Many Are Curious, Where Does Thanos Come From?
Writer and artist Jim Starlin recounts his early thoughts on creating this animated character. The idea first came about during a psychology class at a college. He explained that he was going to college while doing U.S. military service and working for comic book, and there was also a psychic class.
Then he came and brought the idea of Thanos of Titan and Drax The Destroyer. But he felt less sure that the plot would be suitable. Then he thought that it would work out to be a good plot if presented with an angry character.
Afterwards, Starlin visits editor Roy Thomas and himself is increasingly convinced that this is an opportunity for him to perform a character role. Starlin previously felt that even the career he was starting would not last. But in fact it turned around and now the evil character who is able to bring the film to life with a thrilling conflict gets a decent position.
Before becoming publicly watched Thanos was a slightly thinner character. Until Roy the editor advised him to fix it to make his evil impression stronger. Starlin added it until he got bigger and looked stronger. Jim Starlin admits that the villain figure he created is inespable from the influence of Jack Kirby’s Darkseid. That Kirby finished the New Gods that Starlin thinks is great.
